 The Purpose of Fasting

"The month of Ramadan: in it was sent down the Quran, guidance to mankind and a self-evident proof of that guidance and the standard for distinguishing between right and wrong. Whosoever of you witnesses the month should fast it." [Noble Quran 2:185]

The ultimate goal of the fast is to develop taqwa (consciousness of God) in people, as Allah said: “so that it may produce Taqwa in you."   [Noble Quran 2:183]
